Wait times represent the average estimated length of time from registration to being assigned a "first provider" (a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant). Times displayed for Atlantic Health Systems are:

  • Reported as an average of wait times for the previous 2 hours of patients that have presented to the emergency department and have been seen by a provider
  • Refreshed at least every 15 minutes

Many circumstances can affect wait times - for example, patients arriving by ambulance or with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. Patients with severe conditions will be seen before those with less-serious problems or ailments. These times are provided for informational purposes only and cannot be guaranteed upon arrival.

Community Health Needs Assessment

Atlantic Health System strongly believes in listening to our community and working together with other organizations in the region to make a collective impact on public health. That’s why every three years, we conduct a community health needs assessment to better understand the most pressing health needs of the population we serve. The information gathered helps us create action plans and guides our work so that we have the greatest chance of making a meaningful difference.

Our most recent community health needs assessment was completed in 2016 in partnership with the North Jersey Health Collaborative – a group of more than 150 organizations in health care, public health, non-profit, social service and business. This shift to a more collaborative, multi-sector approach was made in the middle of our 2013 Implementation Plan to maximize our chance of making a significant impact on important issues.
